What Causes Tires to Wear Unevenly?

If you’ve ever noticed that your rear tires seem to have more tread than your front set, you might wonder, “Just what causes tires to wear unevenly?” There are several different reasons that your tire wear might not be equal across the set. Some of the wear and tear may result from your driving habits and terrain conditions, but some may also result from the way your car is designed. The good news is that it’s easy to extend the life of your tire set with just a little knowledge and smart driving habits:

Why Does Tire Wear Matter?

When you’re cruising through Alpharetta, it’s important to maintain proper traction for the best control possible – especially when rain and snow are in the forecast. Good tread not only keeps you safer on those Milton roads, but it also improves handling and fuel economy as well. When your tread is low and uneven, you compromise your safety and performance. That’s why it’s so crucial to keep an eye on your tread wear!

What About Tire Pressure?

Tire pressure is also extremely important for your car’s safety and performance. Properly inflated tires are able to accelerate, brake, and turn swiftly. If your tires are under or overinflated, you place greater strain on your set. At best, that could mean an uncomfortable ride and at worse, that could lead to tire failure. Be sure to consult your owner’s manual to find the right tire pressure for your car. 

What is Wheel Misalignment?

Finally, misaligned wheels can lead to uneven wear between your tires. If you’ve ever knocked a curb or hit a pothole around Smyrna, you know that every bump can lead to steering and suspension mishaps. When your tires work hard to compensate for the less-than-ideal conditions, this puts more stress on them. Stay on top of your tire alignments and tire rotations to prevent this from happening!
